Introduction to Weaving Workshop at Bristol Textile Quarter


Tuesday 17 September 2019 // 7pm - 9pm // Bristol Textile Quarter, Bristol

"Lovely - welcoming, relaxed, fun and inspiring!" - Emily, previous workshop attendee

This two hour workshop will provide you with everything you need to know to create a beautiful nature inspired woven wall hanging on a frame loom. You will gain an understanding of different weaving techniques such as rya, looping and pattern making, and you will have a chance to experiment with a wide range of vintage and natural yarns to create texture and colour. I will guide you in using elements and scenes from the natural world to inspire your wall hanging. By the end of the class you will not only have picked up the techniques and styles needed to create a wall hanging, but will also be on your way to finding your own unique weaving voice.

The class is designed for both beginner weavers and also those wishing to develop their weaving style and meet other weaving enthusiasts. 


All materials and equipment will be provided. You will have the chance to purchase your own loom, weaving tools and weaving guide to take home with you to continue your weaving journey after the workshop.

I will provide plenty of inspirational material to help you design your weave but if you have a particular scene or landscape you would like to capture, please bring along a picture.
